I know last week I implied that I wouldn’t be doing a “PawPrints” for this week, because it seemed like there wouldn’t be anything major that’d interest me on shelves. Oh sure, there’s AvX VS #1… a tie-in to Avengers vs X-men, which I couldn’t care less about – I might grab it in trade paperback when it wraps up though.
However, I had some time to kill before meeting with friends at the pub after work, so I popped into my local comic store. I’m very happy I decided to drop by, as I came out with some really great reads. Again, as I said in my previous post, my rating doesn’t necessarily reflect the quality of the particular issue (although that is definitely taken into consideration) but rather my desire to continue reading and supporting the particular series.

I’ve been thinking about reviewing current comic books on my blog for some time. However I’ve never gotten around to doing it. The reason for this largely that I feel like I cannot adequately judge a comic’s quality based on just one issue.
So, instead, what I’ve decided to do is regularly run down my most recent pickups with my immediate thoughts about them. I will also rate each comic from 1 to 5.
The rating will NOT necessarily reflect the whole comic’s quality, but rather my interest in picking up the next issue.
So without further ado, here’s my “PawPrints” for the week of 4/18/12:
Micro Series: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Leonardo #4
I’ve returned from my first I-CON and, as you know, I went into it trying to have as much fun as possible. My last three con experiences (Connecticon, New York Anime Fest, and Gobblecon) were somewhat marred for the various reasons I already discussed.
